Back by Popular Demand: Chemistry Magic Show

After having over 1,300 visitors to our Magic Show in February, the Chemistry Department is pleased to announce that they will be having another Chemistry Magic Show on Saturday, May 7.

The free, one-hour show features substances that explode at the touch of a feather, spontaneous combustion, magical spoons that disappear before your eyes, amazing colour changes, things that glow in the dark, and exciting new tricks.

Check out the hands-on activity room where you can make your own Olympic medals, create ice cream using liquid nitrogen, make your own slime and learn how your nose can tell if a molecule is left- or right-handed.

When: Saturday, May 7
Two shows: 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
The activity room will be open from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., noon to 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Shows: Theatre B, Southam Hall, Carleton University
Activity Room: The Superlab, Room 204, Steacie Building, Carleton University.

The event is free, although attendees are asked to donate a non-perishable food item for the food bank.
Registration is required as seating is limited to 300 people per show. Additional seating will be provided to watch the show via screens.
For information and tickets, please visit:

If you can't make it to Carleton for the live show, you can watch it in the Ottawa area on Rogers digital cable channel 243 or online from anywhere in the world via Carleton University online at: .

I fondly remember going to chemistry magic shows as a kid. Back then they were still run by a professor my mother knew who, if I recall correctly, was known for his many yellow ties that inevitably met their end in liquid nitrogen. Lots of explosions and science. :) I highly recommend this to those of you who have kids!
